Simply Beautiful....both of them....Have always loved scrappy and the Irish Chain is really dramatic in two tones like that...Great quilting job!

Beautiful! I love both the quilt and the quilt to be.
I've just ordered a quilting frame. When it arrives we will have to talk. I will need lots of guidance from the hand-quilting pros here!

P.S. How long is 'forever'?

Ruth the quilting in your Irish chain is just lovely and it would have been a humungeous job, Such patience to hand quilt a whole quilt. Love what you've done with all your 3' squares :thumbup:

Both quilts are lovely Ruth. You hand quilting is beautiful. What a job that must have been. But worth the effort for sure!! Wonderful. :)
